Make the call, get Sugar off our land.
My suggestion is for everyone cutout sugar where ever possible or to substitute sugar with honey. Unfortunately, these guys a supplying the country not just Florida.
Most supermarkets offer sugar grown elsewhere, the sugar I use is grown in Colombia.
You will probably never get enough people to not buy Florida grown sugar to make a difference.
Very informative. Thanks for posting.
Completely ignorant article by a group that should stick to fishing! OK so maybe not,,,,,
4000 acres isn't crap!
Ok, so lets try something else, maybe we should make it impossible to grow sugar there with changes in our water management laws.
Hey, great idea, what the hell are the editor going to say when Big Sugar starts building planned communities out there???????
Lets think this thru boys, a lot going on here to understand when you primary job is to publish a magazine!
Fact is, sugar production on land to be used for a reservoir is good, it save us a ton of money in the initial clearing of the land.
Seriously guys think these things thru so you don't look stupid!
I'm with Ron.
why pick on productive farm land.......no body thinks of using Holeyland, Rotenburger, Everglades.wma, and even Hungryland or Pal Mar ???

Yeah, Clewiston is bursting at the seams and in desperate need of new land to house all those millions of people. They will definitely build huge developments on the land if they can't grow sugar, lol.
